There are many situations that may warrant a tooth extraction. A tooth may need to be removed due to extensive decay or severe trauma. You may also need an extraction to eliminate an impacted wisdom tooth or address crowding concerns during orthodontic correction. Regardless of the reason for your tooth extraction, you can trust the staff at Cosmetic Dentistry of Hayward to provide superior, patient-centered general dental care at all times.
Dr. Patel is an award-winning dentist who values the use of advanced dental technology to provide the most efficient and comfortable treatments. During a tooth extraction, we offer sedation dentistry and we use unique comfort injection techniques to minimize or eliminate your pain during the procedure. If your extracted tooth should need a replacement option, Dr. Patel can explain the benefits of dental implants. Our ability to address all aspects of your smile with long-term function and enhanced aesthetics is something we are proud of at Cosmetic Dentistry of Hayward.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are your last set of molars to emerge. While not all patients experience difficulties, wisdom teeth are known for their high risk for problems. Dr. Patel typically recommends wisdom teeth removal for patients between 16-20 years of age.
When there is inadequate space in the jaw, wisdom teeth can become impacted or grow sideways. They may also partially erupt or get trapped under the gum and bone. Choosing wisdom teeth removal can save you from future dental problems such as bite misalignment, jaw cysts, bone loss and infection. Wisdom teeth removal is conducted just like our routine tooth extraction procedure, with careful precision and minimal discomfort.
